Did You Know?
- Despite Berkeley's reputation for having huge, over-impacted classes, only 15 percent of the courses offered have 50 or more students.
- UC Berkeley's Democratic Education at Cal ("DeCal") program allows students to design and teach their own classes. Past offerings included Italian Cooking, Philosophy of The Simpsons, and Advanced Rubik's Cube.
